Leeds were good, but I was very disappointed with our performance 

 

That was like something out of the Jos era

We need a overhaul in midfield. There’s only Hutchinson that I would keep. If offers came in the summer for Bannan and Reach I would sell.

 

Its amazing how fickle our fans are. They are two of our best players. This place can embarass itself after a defeat.

Vvank today, despite the result helping shaft the pigs, I flipping hate losing and hate playing badly and losing even more. Not a fair reflection of us under Bruce in my opinion, need our pacy players back ASAP.

Looking very forward to next season now.

 

Think Bruce can muster up a top 2 performing side.


We sorta held our own for the first 45, their superior quality came to the fore in the 2nd though.

The way Leeds play is quite unique, you could tell we just didn't have an answer. It doesn't mean they have better players but they have this system which makes it incredibly difficult to get a foot hold in the game. 

 

Hopefully a pre-season under Bruce and a few new additions can make us equally as impressive for the new season.

Don't agree 

 

Sometimes you can only play as well as the opposition allow that was the case today they totally overwhelmed us

Can't stress enough how impressed I was with our refusal to roll over there.

 

QPR put four past Swansea ffs, and Swansea weren't under anything like that onslaught.

 

Fair play Leeds, but anyone who thinks we came out of that looking bad is crazy. We need some muscle in midfield besides Hutch (immense today, again) and we need some pace up top, and we're a ridiculously tough side to beat.

 

Palmer, Westy, Hec and Lees, take a bow lads. Absolutely massive.

 

Bring on next season. Dear god I hope we get Hec again, would actually give my eye teeth at this point.

We didn't have an outlet. Defended well but not enough link between back 4 and front 2. No real pace. Full backs not really overlapping, several times Mattias left on his own. They pressed hard. We defended well but we didn't have the outlet.

At least there's one big consolation.....

No one can claim the result is a surprise. As much as I like Hooper he's still not fit. He would have scored that chance in the first half otherwise.

 

Not sure want some people are on about re Fox today, he's done alright.

 

We just couldn't make a decent forward pass when he broke out which ultimately meant we could not make any better chances.

 

Add to that no Iorfa or Aaron's to give us any pace.

Passing the ball from A to B was truly shocking , worst football I have seen in years

For all their possession l**ds created very few clear chances.

No complaints on the balance of play, we were not offensive enough on the day.

Think Reach going off killed our chance of winning it.

I think if you add in Iorfa, Lazzar and Aarons to the side, we would have had the tools to possibly to carry more of a threat today.

Very disappointed with that

 

At least it doesn’t paper over the cracks, we were miles off the intensity and ball retention of Leeds 

You're right but why can't we have the same intensity? Everyone knows the high press is the way and as a footballer u hate having no time on the ball. Why can't we have the same intensity? Youth? Fitness levels? Desire? Just having a rant cos I'm disappointed....

We are miles behind...

Does anyone really believe that simply 

"Going for it"

would have ended in a win?..nah..probably have got done by 4

 

Bruce tried holding out and hoping they would panic...It didn't work

but with the players at his disposal?

What would have worked...Honestly?

Yeah I'd go with that. Matias aqcuitted himself well enough - better than I expected tbf - but losing Reach took away our one connection from midfield to penalty area. After that point it was damage limitation, which they did incredibly well, but there wasn't really any danger of laying a glove on them...or any team. It wasn't about Leeds really tonight, it said more about where we're very strong and where we're bizarrely weak, despite where all our signings have been.

Someone should tell Bielsa the interviewer isnt on the floor. What a bore of a personality.

This Leeds is completely different to Leeds of the past though.

 

If we went up you'd still be expecting to beat the very best. 

 

Well you can't, and we won't, win them all. May as well lose this one then against say QPR.

 

It’s more or less the same group of Leeds players that they’ve had for the last 2 years.  Only significant difference is the manager.  We’ve also stuck with the same group of players over the same period.  But we upgraded our manager this season too.

 

I don’t know why you’re bringing up hypothetical scenarios into this really.  We haven’t been in the Premier League for 20 years, so making stuff up about what my expectations would be should we ever return is kinda pointless.

 

I don’t have a problem with losing games.  I hate seeing us get beat without giving a decent account of ourselves though, like we have today.  We weren’t playing Real Madrid today, it’s only Leeds United.  Getting totally outplayed like that is unacceptable IMO.
